Songs for Philippians

Songs to accompany a series on Philippians

The call to “Rejoice!” is a vibrant theme in the book of Philippians, and you may want to select a song full of rejoicing to be sung throughout your series.

You might choose the simple, child-like praise of “Rejoice in the Lord Always and Again I Say Rejoice,” or the classic “Rejoice the Lord Is King,” or the newer “Come People Of The Risen King,” (by Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty, Stuart Townend; ©2007 ThankYou Music), with its refrain “Rejoice, rejoice! Let every tongue rejoice! One heart, one voice, O Church of Christ, rejoice!”
